Second grade students at Dr. Weeks were invited on a trip to The Strong | Museum of Play
in Rochester, New York on February 9th! We went for the whole day and participated in two lessons; Once Upon a Time
and Who Dunnit
. Stay tuned for photos after the trip!
Once Upon a Time...
Transform into a character from one of the six stories in the dramatic fairy-tale section in Reading Adventureland: Little Red Riding Hood, The Three Bears, Jack and the Beanstalk, Three Billy Goats Gruff, Three Little Pigs, or Cinderella. Students become the cast as they select a setting, retell, and reenact one of the above classic tales.
A mystery at the Mystery Mansion needs to be solved and students are the detectives! Through deductive reasoning, prediction, mapping skills, and collaboration, detectives use their clues to crack the code of "Who Dunnit?" in the captivating mystery section of Reading Adventureland.
